Private bug reported:

1.  Feature Overview: 
a. Name of feature: WiFi with AX210 on Xeon-D Edge Servers (Ice Lake) for key 
AX210 IoTG WiFi cards targeted for IoTG AX210 Industrial /Embedded temp w/OEM 
supported requirement opportunity.

b. Feature Description: Enable Wireless connectivity/ WiFi (WiFi-6) with
AX210 NIC on Xeon-D Edge Servers (Ice Lake) with Canonical.

c. Usages for: Enable Wireless connectivity on Xeon Edge Servers for
IoTG – OEM designs

d. Software Benefits: WiFi Driver would now have support for new WiFi-6
NIC - AX210.

2.  Feature Details: 
a. Architectures: 64-bit Intel EM64T/AMD64 

b. Any Dependencies:  
WiFi Production Tools (DRTU/CITU) has dependency on proprietary user space 
libraries (WiFi USC) and proprietary WiFi FW binary (not supported in the 
default FW binary that is upstream in Linux FW Git). Intel can provide this to 
Canonical under NDA. This is only needed for validation purposes only, not 
needed for product development. 

c. Drivers or hardware dependencies:  
WiFi Driver required with support for AX210
WiFi Card availability: Card will be available to Canonical WW27. Intel will 
provide setup instructions. There will be following changes needed:
-       BIOS changes that are required to support WiFi on ICX-D
-       PCIe adapter card to make M.2 module to PCIe – These are not 
manufactured by Intel (But Intel will provide these with the modules)

d. Upstream acceptance information:  
Driver: WiFi Driver with support for AX210 NIC is already up streamed in Kernel 
tree (link below).
AX210 driver is the same as CCG. Only update will be the Device IDs for AX210 
Embedded/Industrial SKU.
Firmware: AX210 FE files(iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-62.ucode and 
iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm) are already available in the Linux FW repo, Same 
version can be used by the OSV’s for distribution.
